Chassis Engineer - Actuators/Active Suspension

Job Description:

At Zoox, you’ll collaborate with a team of world-class engineers with diverse backgrounds in areas such as AI, robotics, mechatronics, planning, machine learning, control, localization, computer vision, rendering, simulation, distributed computing, design, and automated testing. You will be challenged to rethink what it means for hardware design to arrive at elegant and efficient systems now that a robot is in control. Working at a startup gives you the chance to manifest your creativity and make a big difference in the final product.

The candidate will have component design and release responsibility for working with components on the innovative active suspension system.  To deliver these systems, the candidate will be an integral member of the chassis actuator engineering team and will work with tier-one suppliers to lead the development and release of components related to the suspension for an active chassis system while meeting cost, weight, timing, and performance targets.  The scope will focus primarily on the strut and spring design and requires prior experience with this set of components.  The candidate will also have experience with hydraulic systems, vehicle dynamics development, and tuning, and CAN network communications and troubleshooting.  Documentation to be delivered in support of component and vehicle execution will include requirements and specifications, failure mode and effects analysis, 2D and 3D computer-aided drawings, PLM release process documents, as well as system and component-level technical specifications.  As we are a small team, this role will also support other cross-functional activities, such as vehicle integration and testing.
